The Brewery

Head Brewer, Wayne Shankel standing beside large copper holding tanks full of delicious craft beer.Since we made our first batch of fresh handcrafted beer in 1995, Paddy's Brewery has produced more than 1 million pints of all natural ales and lagers from our modern 800 hl brewhouse. We brew all of our beers on-site using the best domestic and imported malts, the finest hops available and pure water.

We have fostered our passion for making beer with character. Everyday we bring outstanding brewing skills, a respect for our craft and a farmer's patience to work to produce Paddy's brews that are a reflection of ourselves and our surroundings. In other words, we brew the beers we like to drink and that compliment the rich bounty of fare that the Annapolis Valley is famous for.


Today, Paddy's Brewery offers our flagship Annapolis Valley Ale, Acadian Cream Ale, Raven Ale and Chimney Swift Stout year round, as well as seasonal brews.

We'd love the opportunity to pour you one of our outstanding beers personally, and give you a tour of our brewery.

Acadian Cream Ale

Copper in colour with a light malty flavour and a refreshing finish. Named in honour of the French Acadians who settled in Nova Scotia.

Raven Ale

Smooth with a dark, malty character, and a hint of smoked peat. A thirst quencher and a favourite of many, Raven is a classic Scottish style of ale. It’s the Caw of the Wild!

Annapolis Valley Ale

Our hoppy brew. AVA has an amber hue, a light fruity malt flavour and a floral nose. Those who like it love it!

Chimney Swift Stout

A traditional Irish stout. Black in colour with a robust roasted flavour. Named in honour of the agile Chimney Swift bird’s that roost every summer in the Town of Wolfville . A hearty drink sure to please the enthusiast.
